If the wire is pushed into the plug, you might need to add a 0,1mm head shim.
The colour will be brownesh and still glows well, the thing that this problem started lately

Default Front Uprights

Hey guys,

What is the difference in the old front uprights (T0138B) and the newer uprights in the R (T0164)? I have to replace mine, but I picked up the 138B set from the shop. Should I put them on, or grab a set of the 164?

the R uprights are 2deg the stock are 0deg hope im right also the lower front arms have a chingadera on them so the uprights dont hit the arms as you turn in short you get 164 you need lower arm updated version

Ok. I got that part but what does the 138B do that the 164 0deg does not. Does 138B turn better?

Can you reconfirm which steering part number that produce more steering ? The new one or the old one ?

Default Chassis

I am thinking of changing my 3mm chassis to 4mm, what improvements I will see by using the 4mm?

thanks

Joe

Car will be looser. If you run on a high bite track it could translate into faster laps. On a low bite track it could be a nightmare, well at least it was for me.

Ever since I've upgraded from the original 3mm to the optional 4mm chassis I've noticed a slight increase in grip. I don't run on extremely high traction tracks but over the 3mm it seems to feel much more confident.

I kind of regret for having 4mm chassis in my spare parts.

( IMO 3mm chassis is still the best ).

4mm is stiffer which means it will perform better on high grip tracks. The car wont necessarily be looser as suggested - this is dependent on the rest of your setup - but as a general rule you can expect less rear grip because this is where most of the flex is in the mtx4 with the 3mm. If you are looking for a performance boost then the 4mm chassis probably wont make a huge difference, but most people use it to combat the mtx4s supposed gear stripping issues

As I've said 3 or 4 times before in this thread, I believe the best way to combat 2nd gear stripping is by using the kawahara CF mid brace and 1pc engine mount, & also by meshing 2nd gear independently from first and ensuring your pinions are in good condition. I never really had a problem with stripping gears e.g. it happened occasionally after big shunts or while gasing the car over a ripple strip with the 3mm, & since moving to the 4mm it still happens occasionally

I like the Kawahara 3mm chassis. A little stiffer than the Mugen 3mm but not as stiff as the Mugen 4mm. 4 grams lighter than the 3mm. I've never had any gear stripping issues. KNOCK ON WOOD.

oops typo
